Our unclaimed property team has had a busy month. Richland Mayor Pat Sullivan invited us to the Highway 49 Festival to distribute unclaimed property on September 28. Clinton Mayor Phil Fisher invited us to do the same for Hinds County residents at the Fall Market on October 12. Pike County Supervisors hosted us on October 25 – as did the Mississippi Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors for their 4
Annual BBQ contest, benefiting the Magnolia Speech School. And, this past Monday, the Rankin County Supervisors had our team out to the Courthouse Annex in Brandon.
It is thanks to partnerships like these that we have been able to distribute more than $100 million in unclaimed property since I first took office in January 2012. We are always happy to partner with local elected leaders and community organizations to help reunite Mississippians with their unclaimed property.
Of course, our partnership with the Mississippi State Fair is one of our most exciting! In our first six years at the State Fair, we have helped Fair-goers initiate more than 9,500 claims and collect nearly $12.8 million of their money. And, our booth was very busy again this year, too!
